    2. Bipedal Skeletal Adaptations The bipedal walking cycle of a modern human and non-human primates is significantly different because skeletal morphology is also significantly different. Paleontologists examine the skeletal morphology to determine if a fossil hominid showed any evidence of bipedal adaptation. This section will discuss the uniqueness of the human walking cycle and the major skeletal areas that are involved in bipedal locomotion. 2.1 The Human Walking Cycle Harcourt‐Smith (2007)

    (Amy Stafford, Chimpanzee Communication), studies have shown that chimps and other primates partially share that capability too. "Human language is used for expression of thought, for establishing social relationships, for communication of information and for clarifying ideas." (Noam Chomsky) "So by studying the communication abilities and development of language in chimps and other great apes, we can learn more about ourselves and our own language capabilities."

    that occur in both human and chimpanzee cultures concerning infanticide. I will first explain some of the reasons that chimpanzees practice infanticide and share a few examples of such. Then, I will do the same for human cultures which may not be as prominent as we believe but is still happening. Finally, I will compare the similarities and differences between the two, and show how chimpanzees and humans may not be that different after all in this regard. Chimpanzee Infanticide Chimpanzees react

    Should policies on chimpanzee use in biomedical research be revised, if at all? In the past decades, thousands of chimpanzees have been tested on in order to benefit humankind. Chimpanzees have been useful in developing medical research as they are the closest relatives of humans and have been subject to testing due to the belief that humans should not be tested on. Whereas others would argue against the genetic similarities between the two species as well as the cruel conditions of testing on primates

    thought that humans were the only species able to express themselves and communicate their feelings and emotions through language, but now we know that could not be the case.

These primates live in social communities of several dozen animals, and can accustom themselves to woodlands, grasslands, and African rain forests. While they mostly walk on all fours, also

    They have the ability to overcome the obstacles of everyday life through learning and the ability to use tools to create a better quality of life.
